Holiday Gift Guide - Educational Gifts from Carson-Dellosa Publishing Review

So here's my thought, if you're going to give a gift why not give something that's educational AND fun? Perhaps it's my inner teacher, but this just seems like such a wonderful idea! Carson-Dellosa Publishing offers such awesome products for kids that they are sure to have a blast while exercising their brains.

I was fortunate enough to receive two of their products for this review. The first was a giant floor puzzle of a fire truck. This is perfect for us since my dad is a fireman. He LOVES to read books about firetruck to my daughter, so I knew this would be a hit.
This puzzle has 24 pieces and is 4 feet long. I love the quality of this puzzle. The pieces are nice and thick so they are durable. We had a great time putting the puzzle together and then identifying all the things in the picture.

We also received the T-Rex Floor Puzzle and Activity Book combo pack. This puzzle was a bit more challenging. It's about 3 feet long and made up of 32 pieces. And the activity book is full of fun activities for kids to do. This is geared for children 3+, so there wasn't much for my daughter to do but scribble on the pages. So we've put it aside for when she's a little older. But this activity book could really help bring the dinosaur to life and continue to experience with puzzles and games.
They have a huge selection of items, including pop-up books, flashcards, and more! You can view all of the Carson-Dellosa items on their website. You can order directly from them or look for them at teacher supply stores or anywhere that educational items are carried.
